Is that still true?  I was under the understanding that when I 
graduated in 1988, I was in the last class of grade 13's.  Of course,
under the new system (OACs, or "Ontario Academic Credits") it may
still take most people 5 years to get through high school - 
especially if they're still required to take 5 years' worth of English.
